Scale, here I come!

This week went pretty well. I stayed in my points for the most part and drank a lot! I didn't exercise like I should've. Wait, let's be honest, I didn't officially get down and exercise at all. Unless you can include cleaning cleaning cleaning and chasing around toddlers, etc. ;) Anyways, I kept my focus and was determined to be happy with whatever weight loss I had come weigh in time. I was aware of the fact that last week's weigh in was quite high, so I wasn't gonna shoot myself down if the numbers weren't the best this week. I did make a goal to at least have some sort of loss though. I knew if I kept focused and determined, this could happen.

Well, this week. . . 

I lost 1.4 pounds!!

Nothing extraordinary, but hey, it's a loss right? And I'm happy with it! VERY happy! I'm very glad to have lost weight especially after having a great week last week. I know the first week is a lot of water loss and the weight comes off easier. The 2nd week proves to be a bit more difficult because your body isn't quite sure what's going on and is holding on to it's fat/energy source. SO, that being said, I'm satisfied and motivated to keep going and that's what matters! I truly want to lose and lose and lose. I know it's a difficult road ahead as I'm down to the last  15 lbs until I get to my ULTIMATE goal. I have 7 lbs to go to officially get back to my WW goal. I've been lower than that though and want to be there again! I love how I feel. I love the energy I have and I especially love the confidence I gain. I'm happy at my goal weight, but not as happy as I was when I originally hit that weight before having my children. We all know what kids can do to a body and it seems I don't feel as great and fit as well into my clothes at that goal weight as I did before kids. Big surprise right? So, I ultimately want to get down to the lowest weight I got after hitting goal. But, for now, I'm focusing on just getting to my original WW goal weight. Baby steps right? One foot in front of the other. As long as you're on track to success, it's a wonderful feeling. 

NOW, to get my butt exercising!

Congrats! You know WW say 1/2 -2 pounds is what you should loss each week. Looks like you did that! Way to go! Maybe we can help each other exercise?

I remember being smaller than my goal weight, and I would love to get there again. I am not sure if I ever will, but maybe!! :)

YAY for you on your weight loss :)
